Silence is Golden

November 14, 2008

We’ve all heard the phrase.

Silence is golden. When a salesman does the pitch and knows when to stop and wait for the customer’s response, the silence is powerful.

Silence is golden in the theatre when the actor senses when to pause and when to continue.

And silence is golden in meditation, when we quiet our minds to allowΒ  us to go beneath the surface of the everyday hum of scattered thinking and reach the subconscious and superconscious that bring forth ideas never dreamed of.

Ideas, that emerge in an orderly fashion, can be used to manifest your desires.

Oh yes. Silence is certainly golden.
